2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 4-2-5-2-9=22
Blond color, hazy. Too light aroma. Dry mouthfeel, it has a crispy flavor of corn and moderate bitterness. Dry finish.
Easy.

2006-12-17, draught at Humperdink’s, Dallas, as Texas Blonde, 2-2-2-2-4=12
Blond color. No aroma, no taste, just less close to water than the Light, but useless as well.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. A clear one, more or less, topped by a small, white head. Pale golden in color. Some grains in the aroma, but it’s mostly fruity. Peaches and canned pears spring to mind. Pretty similar flavor, with a nice drying bitterness. Medium body, quite dry, with pleasant carbonation. Certainly not a world class beer, but it’s tasteful and thirst quenching. 130629
